Join Diane Ackerman for lunch as she presents One Hundred Names for Love. In narrating the recovery of her husband, Paul West, from a stroke that reduced his vast vocabulary to a single syllable, Ackerman evokes the joy and mystery of the brain’s ability to find and connect words. In this deeply rewarding book, Ackerman gives us a literary love story, accessible insight into the science and medicine of brain injury, and invaluable spiritual sustenance in the face of life’s myriad physical sufferings. Ackerman is the author of The Zookeeper’s Wife.
